London Metropolitan University has won back its right to recruit international students, after its Tier 4 sponsor licence was controversially revoked last August. The Home Office said the university would now hold a probationary sponsor licence. The university welcomed the move but said it still planned to take legal action against the government, claiming its reputation has been damaged.
The National Union of Students' (NUS) International division has posted up a video online, detailing the turnaround it helped achieve for international students that were at risk of deportation in the London Met fiasco. NUS International Students Officer, Daniel Stevens, underlines that HTS closures continue to impact those at private colleges.
